My guess (but it's just a guess) is that a small amount of dust is to be exptected in any used lens, and would not make an otherwise mint lens less than mint.  OTOH, a lot of dust might be a different story.

Are we not supposed to have dust in our lenses? I don't think I have a single lens that doesn't have some visible dust in it (maybe the 8-15mm fisheye I bought a few months ago). It doesn't seem to affect the image at all except maybe my forty year old 55mm f1.2 which gets a little hazy wide open.
